Get something else Review by CBoyles
I used this camera on my motorcycle and the lense cracked. I thought is was an errant stone now I am reading that this is all too common. I put a lense cover to protect it but now it won't turn on. I replace the batteries and no joy. This unit is shiite.. (Posted on 7/24/12)
Device number 2 Review by Phil
The front glass lens of mine cracked twice!!!
I fortunately had hardware issue and Oregon sent me a new one. I was happy since the lens was broken. 2 days later, the second one broke. I don't even know how. :(
Looks like I'm not the only one. Wonder how it can be fixed... (Posted on 7/23/12)
New Mounting options Review by Dopey
With the release of the new ATC MINI Oregon Scientific have a new host of mounts Hard Shell helment mount, Surf mount, Handle Bar mount, ATC9K suction mount. Granted you will need to purchase the ATC conversion kit if you wish to use the ATC Mini mounts with your ATC9K but well worth it.
Some of the mounts are almost a copy of the GO PRO (Posted on 2/9/12)
